GUEST,Some bloke Playing medieval music medievally (83* d) RE: Playing medieval music medievally 25 Sep 18


Repeating tunes in a progressive style was a way of reaching the tempo people were used to.

Fascinating series of lectures on the subject I attended when I was taking my Grade 8 many moons ago that our school arrangedca few of us to attend at RA.

Mind you, I do reference more than one book before posting, Jack. I assume you need to ensure it is fully crayoned in before moving to another book eh?

Just because I use Some Bloke rather than Ian Mather, doesnít mean I enjoy my relating academic opinion being trashed by ignorance. An apology would be nice but not expected. Iím relating it. Unlike some here, I am not shackled by certainty. Just relating what I know has been proffered.

For anyone wondering who hasnít read up the thread, I mentioned that there is a large body of opinion in musicology circles that overall, tempo has decreased over the last few hundred years. Interesting viewpoint relative to the thread. But seems to have been missed by Prof Sir J Campin, so dismissed and attempted to make others look silly.

Enough! (See his post for details)
